I find it quite easy to think one thing will lead to another thing and that will certainly lead to this result. (often these results are negative) it’s a not fun loop.
Enter thinking on the verse: don’t say tomorrow we will go and do this and then we will do that… that’s vanity. Instead, say “if the Lord wills, we will do this, or that…”
So, if I thought like this: if the Lord wills, this statement will lead to this which will lead to that which will most definitely lead to the other…” I probably wouldn’t be beating myself up in my mind because I’m pretty sure the Lord does not will things the war karma works.
So I think this “if the Lord wills” bit is going to make me view what’s to come more positively and enjoy the moment.
